Libraries on the Loose! Opening Reception


Libraries on the Loose! features the twenty Little Free Libraries that were designed, built, and installed as part of this past summer’s Libraries on the Loose Design/Build Competition, hosted by Architects Without Borders – Seattle and Architecture for Humanity – Seattle. Little Free Libraries are small-scale book shelters that function as “take-a-book, leave-a-book” gathering places. They provide a location where the free exchange of books, ideas, stories, and interests contribute to a shared experience valued by neighbors and visitors. Participants were asked to focus on certain design criteria, including assembly, affordability, adaptability, community, and creativity. Stop by the AIA Seattle Gallery to see the incredible submissions and learn how you could easily make one for yourself in order to promote literacy and community in your local neighborhood!

Join us for light snacks, beverages, and conversation.
